Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Microbial Contamination team investigates
and evaluated IAQ in non-industrial workplaces such as governmental
and private offices, schools, hospitals, universities, correctional
facilities, addiction treatment centers, courthouses, shopping centers
and warehouses undergoing remodeling or renovations. This includes
the presence of microbial contamination (fungi or bacteria), which
also represents a health hazard to occupants of the building, or to
construction workers during renovation or demolition. IAQ surveys
include the identification, evaluation and control of potential indoor
sources of contaminants.
The Building Science team consists of specialists trained to make recommendations based on visual inspections, diagnostic testing, and monitoring when necessary. They provide overall assessment of the building’s components to provide the Owner with an evaluation of these various components - the foundation essential for well developed, easily managed and economically sound programs for corrective building maintenance.
The Air Quality team provides engineering and Air Monitoring services that focus on responsible discharge and abatement of industrial and commercial air emissions, and control of worker exposure to contaminants through ventilation. Emissions include any chemical and odor discharges to the atmosphere.
